The Santa Fe County government’s insurance company, One Beacon, will pay $750,000 in legal fees to the O Centro Espirita Beneficente União do Vegetal (UDV) church under terms of an agreement approved Tuesday that settles a land-use dispute.

The conflict arose last year after the county denied a request by the Santa Fe branch of UDV — a Christian-based religion with origins in Brazil — to build a temple in Arroyo Hondo south of the city. Area residents opposed the project, citing concerns over traffic, water use and the group’s practice of using a hallucinogenic tea as its sacrament.

    The County will continue to pay out fees for bad land use decisions unless the BCC finalizes the New Land Code. This project has been on going for 3 years and no individual or entity has any idea what direction to take concerning land uses. Lots of time and $ has been spent on the new Sustainable Land code and once again, nothing has been completed.
